    I'm afraid that I cannot add my recommendation to the FroggTogg's. I bought two sets (Horny Toadz) in the fall of 2011. Both pairs of pants have been replaced twice and one of them still leaks. I will say that their customer service department responded quickly to my complaint, but in the end, the pants still leak. I have been very disappointed. I am not sure what I am going to buy to replace the FroggTogg's, but I will not own another set of them.

    I also had a bad experience with Frogg Toggs. The zipper broke one day into a trip in the pouring rain so I was forced to buy something to replace it. Went with the two piece, high vis HD suit and I love it. Pricey (around $200 or 250 if my memory serves me) but works great, easy on and off, and you're still highly visible even in a dark, pouring rain.

    Agree with Dr. here. Wife and I have the two piece HD high vis suit. Keeps us as dry as anything I have used and are very durable.

    I had some frogg toggs and they were ok but melted on the exhaust, bought another off brand ( cheap ) and they were ok but melted on the exhaust. Like the Dr. did I purchased an H.D. high vis rain suit expensive but the best rain gear ever, and it didn't melt on the exhaust don't go cheap you get what you pay for.
